rofl, you said it, Mauv!

And welcome back, Gypsy! Don't beat yourself up about falling off the wagon... it'll only make it harder to get back on. You can't change yesterday - but you CAN change tomorrow!

Thanks so much for the support guys. I actually got offline and made a list after reading that yesterday, and I am trying to make some mini-goals and remind myself of reasons why I want to lose the weight. And there are some good reasons too...
I guess I am going to have to face reality that I will either need to buck up and do stuff I don't want to do or keep living the way I am now and turn into my mother more and more each day.
I don't know what I am waiting for, really. I was doing good for like - 15 mintues and then I went back to my laziness.
I am going to have to search for something that motivates me to do this. What motivates you guys??

btw- i have a pic on my fridge already. and it's funny cause i remember when we got the pic back and i thought how fat i looked and now i want to be that size, or maybe even a little bigger. *L*

What motivates me?

1) I don't want to end up with weight related health issues when I get older.

2) I want to feel fit and healthy.

3) I want to age well - look good, feel good and lead an active life.

4) I want to feel comfortable and confident in the clothes I am wearing.

Now for the shallow ones.....

1) I want to be able to buy clothes in any store I want to.

2) I want to look good in a bathing suit this summer

3) I want to feel like I've still got "it"

4) I want other men to say to my DH "Wow! THAT'S your wife?!?

Here are my motivations:

1. To be one of those lean, muscular, HAPPY looking 80-something women you see sometimes in Runners World magazine - only I'll be walking a lot and running just a little!

2. I want to stay healthy and do all the things I want to do (related to above).

3. I want to set a great example for my daughters.

4. I want to wear clothes because they look good on me, enhance me not to hide in.

5. To feel confident when I go out and around other people.

6. To not cringe at the sight of a camera or videocam coming out aimed in my direction!

7. So I can deal with my father/my family with confidence & feeling empowered, not defensive!

Man, I'm like, totally confused. Isn't this Pigs Anon?

I've come to make a confession. I have been a very bad pig, and have eaten a small bag of Tostidos. My first chips in almost 3 weeks. I am so ashamed.

Lizzi, I missed your original post. Aren't these girls just so wonderfully supportive!? I love all of you. And I'm so glad that you're facing your situation and doing something about it. Hang in there, hon.

I have a long list of motivators, but the most recent one is the thought of my sweet Dad having a triple bypass this summer. Imagining it happening to me. Having my ribcage opened up. shudder. Sort of makes me queazy.

And I want to look great as I'm aging. I'm enjoying the aging process (well, I'm enjoying gaining wisdom, confidence, etc.) and don't even mind the wrinkles, but I want to look the best I can for whatever age I'm at. I want to look healthy and vibrant. And natural. I don't want to be some Joan Collins type trying to conceal my age.

I have been a huge the last few days. No real good reason. Just not having a good time.

Ok that's not completely true - the one time I was having fun, I got to have dinner with a friend I haven't seen in 2 years.

Whew! I'm glad you posted, Squeak. We were getting of topic - again! I was starting to think of something to pig out on so I could come in here and post and read all the motivational stuff.

So give us the gory details of the dinner. I live vicariously.

Um, lets see. This week has included - garlic pan bread with cheese, potato skins, cheesecake, chicken strips with wing sauce, chinese buffet, ice cream cake, 2 Tim's donuts, and a few timbits, McD's for breakfast twice, and tomorrow I have a wedding to go to, and Sunday a picnic.

I am pretty sure that temporary pound I picked up because of TOM is now more permenant.

President's Choice (the Loblaws store brand, for you non-Canadians!) has a new rice chip out - thin and just like a potato chip. I had a LOT of the sour cream and onion ones last night. And a chocolate mint. Burp!

I have an entire package of chocolate oreos and the guys want to order pizza later. I am excercising, but nothing is going to keep up with my oinkhood!

No more chocolate mints in the house, thank goodness (or rather not, as they are in my stomach getting ready to transform into subcutaneous FAT). So I can get back on the straight and narrow. Yup, why not!

And they were really BAD chocolate mints too! Why do I eat them when they are cheap and terrible? (Cuz they are in the house, that is why)

Oh curses.
I ate 3 "real" popsicles (creamsicles). They were high fat, high sugar. They were SO sweet, but I ate them anyhow.
And I ate 6 shrimp rolls with peanut sauce.
curses.
I only ate one pistachio, though!
